Time and Time Again
I do not remember the exact year or teacher, but I vividly recall one day in one of my first school years when the teacher discussed the future. She was telling us about a far off event . . . the changing from one century to the next . . . in the year 2,000. She discussed some of the previous centuries, and the history of time as it moves from century to century. My young imagination tried to picture what life would be like in the new century, and I distinctly remember counting the years from that day until the year 2,000, then determining how old I would be if I survived to that ripe old age. I remember debating with my vivid imagination whether or not I would still have my wits about me and would recognize and appreciate the twenty first century. Surely if I was still alive in that far off year, I might be so old that I would be senile and could not appreciate that a new century had arrived. Well, that century is now more than a decade old, and inside my mind I still feel like I did when I was youngster, regardless of the white whiskers on my chin that tell me otherwise. And despite what some of my friends say, I still have a bit of my wits about me even in this twenty first century.
Ever since watching the original Star Trek on channel 43 in Cleveland Ohio when I really was in my twenties, I have enjoyed science fiction and journeys into space and time. And now thanks to cable television with hundreds of channels I can enjoy Dr. Who from Britain on the BBC America channel. Always a leader in science fiction, this British movie brings us the very first motion picture that featured a time machine, and along with some believable science fiction, a huge dose of the unbeatable British word humor. Their use of the language for double entendre and the effective use of meaningful synonyms, like when one of our stars is headed for a visit to the Queen's court and states, 'any court in a storm.' Grab a big bowl of home-popped white kernel popcorn drizzled with lots of warm melted butter, and enjoy a blast from the past as our heroes travel back in time to the England of Queen Elizabeth the first.
